New basin at Clarkes Road storage

New water storage will support network expansion

With the growth of Traralgon, the water reticulation system experiences challenges when meeting peak summer demands.

These demands will increase in future with planned construction projects to connect the Traralgon, Morwell and Tyers water systems to the Traralgon system.

Building a new 50ML water storage basin at Clarkes Storage will store additional water, allowing the water treatment plant to operate at its current output, with any shortfalls in supply buffered by the new 50ML Basin.

Construction is expected to start in 2024-25.
